The Adult Learning Center (ALC) now includes Career Pathways programming for Taos County. We serve under-prepared learners and workers, both with and without high school diplomas, in obtaining meaningful and supportive careers.
The three components of the Career Pathways programming are career infused academic classrooms, direct participation with employers and with post-secondary institutions, and explicit professionalism and life skills training. Students will develop a Career Portfolio, explore college and career training options, participate in job shadowing and internships, and learn health and financial literacy skills.
The complexity of today’s world demands that students not only learn academic and technical skills, but also understand how to problem solve, efficiently communicate, and develop a sense of self-efficacy. Career Pathways provides a platform from which students can make the leap into personal and professional success.
